Kanye West Gets Probation in Paparazzi Battery Case

Kanye West

Kanye West has pleaded no contest to misdemeanor battery against a paparazzo.

According to TMZ, the rapper maintains his innocence and will not be prosecuted for battery of L.A. photographer Daniel Ramos.

West was charged with misdemeanor counts of battery and grand theft following the incident at LAX last July. In return for the no contest plea, the attempted grand theft charge has been dismissed.

West was sentenced to two years of probation, 24 anger management therapy sessions, and 250 hours of community service. At the end of the two years, the conviction will most likely be erased from his record as long as he complies with the terms.

West has agreed to stay away from Ramos and must pay for the photographer’s damaged equipment and any medical bills he incurred.

While addressing the court, Ramos said he felt West should be sent to jail because he shows no remorse. He believes the rapper used the attack to promote his album Yeezus.

    don’t get me wrong I think Kanye can be douchy sometimes but isn’t that a lot ???? i mean he barely punched the guy ! that’s ridiculous to get to do anger management session, 250 hours of CS and 2 years of probation ! In that case a lot of people should go to jail (meaning a lot of people fight and never get anything)

    Kanye West is controlled by egomaniac designer Marc Jacobs. He is the
    manipulator of the century! He has great influence on Lady Gaga, Miley
    Cyrus, Rihanna and more. He is responsible for Miley’s shocking new
    image. Jacobs cruelly tortures and stalks a young girl. Read the truth

    KARDASHIANS ARE FILTH. This has Kris Jenner’s name written all over it. Smh 2 years of probation is not as easy as it sounds, especially in Hollyweird. Look at Chris Brown…

    That sleazball Daniel milked it tbh. In the video, it didn’t seem like Kanye did any major damage to him.
